Paypal spoofs…

I get loads of these sent to me, so thought I’d post a link to the 10 ways to spot a spoof/fraud email page on paypal’s own site.

All good stuff, but it’s easier than that – never click on links in emails from any financial institution. Never. Just open your web browser of choice, type in their URL and log in as you normally would to check your account. If they’ve got something urgent to tell you, it’ll be mentioned on their page when you log in as well, not just in some email.

There must be loads of people getting caught out by this crap – banks don’t ask you to re-verify your details, so don’t do it.
